Excellent colors that go together weirdly because the lighting is wrong for the flowers and sunset. I like the effect it has!

Thank you all so much for taking the time to view and comment on this piece.
I was not sure how it will be taken here, but I felt if even just one person liked this, I would have been happy... and I got 10 more... it makes me 10 times happer... :D

Marsha, thank you very much for your description on this. I love that. Us who live in Texas, perhaps, look at bluebonnets differently...

Thank you again, everyone!!!

This is so special and I am happy for receiving this honor.
This image (as I said above) was created a year ago and was my favorite but did not make the finalist.
This is a resubmit of the same entry a year ago for I wanted to give it another chance.
Thank you everyone here and the BP judges.

Jo Ann,
Thank you for your comment.

I have not participated in Betterphoto contest for several years now.

I really do not think this was in last month finalist unless Betterphoto or its members played a trick.
I would appreciate if you could point to the contest (finalist) page where this may be found.

Regards,
Nobi
